Wow what an amazing wedding Claire & Noah !
I’m always telling couples how their wedding should be a reflection of their personalities and these guys got it spot on !
I’ve seen a lot of weddings and it’s always so nice to see two people that are so perfect for each other !
Claire & Noah also have an amazing circle of friends that just love them to bits !
These guys love their family & friends and the whole day was about sharing that love
When Claire told me about all the activities that would be at the weddings for the kids it was easy to see that these guys just love their family so much !
This wedding held many firsts for me, I’ve photographed over 600 weddings but this was the very first Pagan Ceremony I’ve witnessed and it was awesome !
Another first was the boys skinny dipping in the creek 30 minutes before the ceremony was due to kick off, drying themselves off and getting dressed right there by the creek ..!
